It will also be a major factor in deciding how long your new investment will last. Among the durable, natural fabrics that you can choose are cotton, wool, linen and leather. Among the synthetics, olefin is one of the most versatile fibers available. You can find olefin upholstery fabrics in weaves that mimic nearly any woven fabric - that are wash and wear easy when it comes to care. Take the extra trouble to make sure that your slipcovers and the covers for your cushions are removable so that they can be easily dry-cleaned or machine washed.

You have to decide whether your sofa will be used for formal occasions or will be used very regularly. Leather recliners can be great but may pinch your pockets slightly harder. If you have kids, the sofa will get some roughing up frequently. Children tend to drop food, juices and other junk on the sofa. The sofa, in such cases must be very simple and practical. It may have busy prints to hide the stains and dark colors to keep people from noticing the little \"accidents\", as the best detergents and dry cleaners may not be able to remove them completely.

The variety of finishes and durability of materials keeps leather looking like new for longer. Rather than worrying about rips or tears in the material, owners can look forward to tasteful aging and unique wear. Older leather adds character and charm to a room instead of looking worn and tired.

To avoid cheap Chinese imitations is a must. The biggest exporter is Turkey. Pros: * Great sleeping and sitting quality: There are models with both excellent sleeping and sitting comfort. * Comes with storage: Most of the models come with an easy to access, spacious storage place. * Easy to use mechanism. Unlike the pull-out ones, their mechanisms are very easy to function. *Inner spring structure: Although there are models with foam cushions available, majority of them come with a durable orthopedic innerspring structure. *Built in Cushion: Unlike futons, you don't have to buy the frame and the cushion separately. They come with a built in mattress which doesn't slide under you. Cons: *Un-exchangeable cushion: When the cushion gets old, it is not possible to replace it. But for most of the consumers it shouldn't be a problem since European Sofa beds are very strongly built and even with everyday usage as a bed, they last for a decade. * Firm sitting and sleeping surface: For most Americans, not only sofa beds but all European made sofas are firm for their taste.

Cleaning companies will have a range of chemicals used for specific stains: one for coffee, one for red wine, one for doggy mess, etc. If your best efforts have failed, with professional upholstery cleaning the proof is in the pudding, or lack of it on your sofas, as the case may be.

Still, you can make a big difference with new fabric covering for the upholstery and a change of style for the seating cushions. It can be as simple as choosing slipcovers for the couch and cushions in a livelier, updated style, or - if you're daring - you can go as far as cutting away the attached pillow back and replacing it with cushions.

Of course, to give your home a diversified look every now and then, it would be advisable to segregate the sectional sofa to stand alone as individual sofas. Most of the sectionals available nowadays are sleek and can be used in about ten configurations in a room. This thus makes it quite easy to plan the interior of the room. Of course, when buying a sectional sofa, it is necessary for you to keep in mind whether or you will be in the same place you are in now, in the future. This is because smaller proportions always make usage of the sectional sofa in a new apartment easy.

These types of stains are easily mashed into the fabric of the upholstery, making them harder to clean, even by a professional home cleaning company with the proper chemicals and equipment. The best thing to do with these more heavy duty spills is to remove as much of the mess as possible without further soiling your upholstery or pushing it deeper into the fabric.
